Sorry Archie, you're wrong. What you see on WB is true HDnet programming. They buy it from HDnet as a package and it is a combination of the two HDnet channels available from the sats. The progamming on WB may not be to your liking but it is HDnet. Personally I don't think HDnet from the sats is much to talk about.
Uh, nope, you're the one who's mistaken, Hugh! Have you checked out their programming on OTA HDNet? There are football games from last year, Mark Cuban interviews from last year, CEDIA reports from 2 years ago, etc., etc. I repeat, nothing current, and nothing that mirrors the real
HDNet programming available from the DBS services and TWC's HD package. If you can catch Bikini Destinations, or a current World Report on OTA HDNet, or anything
produced recently, you let us know, 'kay?
And as to compression on TWC, I don't have it, but I've seen their digital lineup at friend's houses, and it contains all the over-compressed video artifacts evidenced on both DBS services. I don't know about their HD content, having not seen that.
